Hi guys, I am trying to get a plan going in the run up to next CX season, probably 1st September 2019.
Not racing this season due to a tendon injury in the summer but lot of hard work with a physio and seems good now.
I would have worked back from late August a full cycle of base-build-specialty (short power / CX focus) and filled from now till then with a chunk of base to get me going again but from now till then I got three holidays booked which are making planning tricky.
First is 10 days end October with my bike which I can work around no problems.
Second is in April for 14 days with my bike. First week will be solo so can do some non-measured but specific sessions. Second week have some friends coming out to ride, I think I can work around if acknowledge I will lose some training quality/intensity. Any tips for making most of this free riding with no power measurement would be great.
Third is a tricky time, 17 days without my bike from 4th July out to 20th. This would be the first 3 weeks of the specialty plan and when back go into a low TSS week. Right when should be coming into form I get my slackest time! Any ideas for this time will really be appreciated as know just how much a few weeks can cost you.
Thanks in advance - I have read about how to adjust plans but it doesn’t quite deal with this.
